DescriptionThis small pot, made with clay from Brigden, was made by someone in the federal Department of Mines. The pot was either likely made for a local potter, experimenting with a clay body, or as part of a broader exploration into the viability of ceramic industries in Canada. This set of small experimental pieces was donated to the ROM in the 1920s.
